Mercer University (Psychology)
Hello, my name is Tristen. I am headed into my Sophmore year at Mercer University. I grew up in a small town on a farm, and I have two younger brothers. I played sports my entire life and throughout my high school career. I was a part of 3 state championship baseball teams and all-state in soccer. I have set my goals to major in Psychology then go to Med School to become a doctor. I want to achieve a career as a radiologist and help cancer patients in their fight through chemotherapy and radiation.
My educational career started in a poor public educational system. I transferred to Tattnall Square Academy in my 7th-grade year. I graduated from Tattnall as an Honor Graduate and went on to receive on Academic scholarship to Mercer University. After my first semester at Mercer, I was named the English 101 student of the year. I am now on the Mercer list to become a writing preceptor to the incoming freshman. I was on the Dean's list after my fist year in college. I have worked with younger kids on multiple occasions throughout much of my life. I was a tutor to lower grade elementary students in reading in my years in middle school. I also help teach my 9-year-old little brother on the subjects he troubles in. I am rather flexible, especially in the summer. I work a part time job in Macon, but I can give my work schedule to you and we can work around times that are convenient for you. I have learned one thing in college that wasn't well done in high school. If you want to learn the most, you have to have fun learning. There is no need to stress yourself crazy when there is a solution. Some things take time, but there will always be an answer to each problem.
I have tutored on and off throughout high school, and I also help tutor writing skills in college. I prefer to work with younger kids, but there is no prejudice whatsoever. I am used to tutoring kids in younger grades; however, I am willing to work with anyone. I have tutored kids from kindergarten to fifth grade since I was in middle school. Now that I am in college, I work mostly with reading and writing or handwriting. I plan to make learning a fun process rather than a boring reading session. If a kid has fun learning, they will never realize they are actually learning. I noticed this a lot in college, and I plan to use it in my tutoring. I want to make learning fun instead of sitting in a chair looking at books. I plan to get to know each child, so there is a more willingness to learn. All in all I am a person who likes to have fun, and when you can learn while having fun there is no limit to what you can learn. Feel free to contact me for further information. Hope to see you soon!

I played baseball my entire life. I was a 3-time state champion in high school. I pitched, played middle infield, and outfield. I had a elbow injury my junior year that caused me to miss my senior season.
I have played my whole life. I was asked to join several club teams, and I was even asked to travel with the Georgia Junior Olympic team when I was 13. After 4 years off, I was all-state my senior year of soccer.
